The log shows that your file was copied explicitly by Subversion, even
though you issue only one "svn copy" command. In other words, from
the perspective of the repository code (and hench, the code that
decides what to show for 'svn log'), you actually did four copies in
the commit shown below:

My guess is that you did a bunch of work without ever running 'svn
update' on your tree, because when you copied trunk it was still at
revision 1. In revision 1, trunk must not have had a child named
Datei1, else that line in 'svn log' would have had an "R" action
(replacement) instead of an "A" (addition).

That'd be great. Thanks.
